Modernizing the Home Infusion Coding System
Recorded On: 05/02/2022
NHIA is seeking member review and comment on a proposal to request modifications to the home infusion Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes (S-codes). The existing S-codes were developed by a group of NHIA members 20 years ago and have not been substantially changed since introduced in 2002. The code set was robust with specific codes reflective of the infused therapies delivered in the home at the time and accomplished the goal of standardizing billing procedures across various payers, reducing the administrative burden on providers, and improving the ability to negotiate contract terms.
